Costs of Living
[Recording Date: September 27, 2022]
Hey there, Kits!
The rising cost of living is pretty much on everyone's mind these days, particularly when it comes to food. Recently the federal government unveiled a suite of measures to help Canadians get by. Your Eager Beaver and Mr. Grizzly bring you facts first to inform you on what is included.
On this flagship episode, we also talk about Hurricane Fiona, the results of a very rare referendum in Cuba which ties in with a segment from our most recent extended interview with noted human rights activist Murray Billet about the upcoming 25th anniversary of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation being outlawed in Canada, and of course some cool news about Black Canadians and athletes who make us proud.
We also have some exciting news about new True North Eager Beaver format initiatives for you to enjoy.
It's our first flagship of the fall season, so grab a warm blankie and your favourite bevvy, and join us around the Beaver Lodge fireplace for a little chinwag, won't you?
We've been waiting for you and we so enjoy your company.
Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something.
Since we believe that Democracy Is Something You Do...
As of this morning, Canadians have already donated $3.6M to Red Cross Hurricane Fiona relief for our brother and sisters in Atlantic Canada. The donations will be matched by the federal government for the first 30 days, so please do the right neighbourly thing, and give generously.
All you need to do is click this link to get there.
